My oldest daughter is 9 yrs. old and her real father is a dead beat alcoholic. Well anyways cut to the point, he is not providing insurance for her the way he is suppose to, I have applied for Medi-cal and I make too much money, so I tried to apply for Healthy Families and I don't make enough. My husband has insurance for myself and the rest of my kids however she had insurance at the time of open enrollment and now we can't enroll again until December but she need to go to the doctors now is there anything else I can try.

What can I do next?

My understand of most insurance is even if she had insurance at open enrollment but she doesn't now that is considered a qualifing event to get her insurance. It is just like the birth or adoption of a child you have 30 from the day she lost her insurance to get her added to yours.

Call the medi-cal office back and make sure they know that your daughter's birth father is not in the home. Under medi-cal, there is another program that she could be considered eligible for because her real father is not in the home. Ask your worker about that and see if she would qualify under that program.

California has an insurance offered to kids until they reach the age of 18 or are no longer living with you....www.healthyfamilies.com. We pay $15.00 a month for vision, dental and medical. We have $5.00 co pays...we have blue cross for medical, vsp for vision and dental net for dental. We are on a tight budget and the company that my husband works for doesn't offer benefits. I hope this helps... good luck!

I am sorry to learn of your situation. You may want to shop around for a Pediatrician, explain your situation as a "cash pay" and why no insurance and see if they'll negotiate lower fees for you. As well, many doctors can get free prescription for you from the mfg of the prescriptions.

If this doesn't work seek help through the local county hospital, ask for a social worker for direction.

I wish you the very best in this situation.

Family care clinic in Temecula by courthouse. Also there isn't such a thing as not making enough to qualify for Healthy Families.

Hi
There is not suppossed to be a gap between Medi-Cal and Healthy Families. Are you sure about this?
Here in California you could make up to 51000 and some change per year and still qualify. If you are on the lower end of the income graph, you are suppossed to automatically qualify for Medi-Cal.
